Another in the Series of Famous Pocket Games: Vamoose

Vamoose, as you would expect for a game designed for 7-12 years olds, is about Moose. The object of the game is to get your four moose to their home.

However, more in-depth information about the game is hard to find.

The game was created by Transogram — and based on the fonts and colors it is from the 50s or 60s (The company went out of business in the late 60s.). The version I have may have been sold through a different company since the word Transogram is not present in the upper right corner as it is in other versions.

Game box and board is about 7 x 5 inches and the game is made of hardened plastic. It was definitely designed with durability in mind. The game consists of four sets of different colored moose, a playing board with plastic cover and two dice. My game is nearly complete, missing only a red and a yellow moose. Game instructions are written on the back of the box. It is made in Hong Kong.

I am unsure of its values since the only price I have found is for one listed on eBay for $15. It is such a specialized game, I doubt many collect it.

Take a look at this link about Transogram, to learn more about the company or to view photos of their popular board games based on TV shows.
